ACTION ALERTS: From Week 2 of the 2021 WV Legislative Session
Contact Your Legislators about These Bills & Resolutions! Since many important bills are moving so fast up at the legislature, we’ve decided to pull together a mid-week action list to help folks keep up with the dizzy pace at the capitol.

Visit www.wvlegislature.gov to find who represents YOU in the WV House and Senate, and how to contact them. More
